  • Exclusive: ‘Pro-Troop’ Charity Pays Off Tea Party Cronies Instead [Leftist Lies]

    In February 2013, Move America Forward announced an ambitious fundraising goal. The charity, launched in part by one of the most prominent figures in the Tea Party movement, had adopted the 800 Marines in a battalion fighting in Afghanistan and wanted to send them all care packages. ......................................................... Yet an examination of its fundraising appeals, tax records and other documents shows that Move America Forward has repeatedly misled donors and inflated its charitable accomplishments, while funneling millions of dollars in revenue to the men behind the group and their political consulting firms.
  • Exposing Tea Party Express Co-Founder's Amnesty Ties

    ConservativeHQ ^ | Chris Chmielenski
    Sal Russo, co-founder of the Tea Party Express, announced his support for amnesty on Wednesday, reversing his organization’s statement from a year ago that it would not take a position on immigration reform. If you take a look at Russo’s background, this isn’t exactly the revelation that some in the media are making it out to be. What’s interesting, though, is the dichotomy between Russo’s position and the principles of the organization he helped to create. The Tea Party Express bills itself as anti-establishment, but Russo’s immigration proposal is nearly identical to the principles pushed by GOP House Leaders --...
  • Conservatives Need to Fix the Broken U.S. Immigration System [Russo Sellout]

    Roll Call ^ | May 15, 2014 | Sal Russo
    The U.S. immigration system is flawed and broken. Conservatives should be at the forefront of reform so the law reflects the just interests of the United States, not misty-eyed ideals of some of the liberal do-gooder reformers. What is good for America should be the sole criteria for immigration reform. Our laws today are unenforced and citizens and companies who play by the rules are undermined by bad actors who do not. This undermines our rule of law and slows our economic growth. In today’s global economy, we cannot afford the status quo. Congress must pass legislation that will fix...

    Political analysts called it the ''Giuliani factor,'' and in November they cited it as a chief reason Michael R. Bloomberg, a rich businessman with no experience in elective office, pulled off a stunning upset to become mayor of New York City. Yesterday political analysts were again mulling the Giuliani factor, this time to help explain how Bill Simon Jr., a rich businessman with no experience in elective office, pulled off a stunning upset to win the Republican nomination for governor of California. Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former New York City mayor and the man whom the national Republican Party intends...

    Caan, who appeared in the classic mobster film "The Godfather", even offered to stand bail for alleged Mafia hitman Andrew "Andy Mush" Russo. He revealed the alleged killer is godson to his son Scott, star of the TV crime series Hawaii 50. The 76-year-old Colombo family crime boss was among the more than 125 suspected mob members seized in a series of coordinated raids across New York and New Jersey last week. The takedown was the biggest operation mounted by US authorities to smash the five crime families running organised crime in New York. Russo is alleged to have killed...

    Supporting Andrew Russo for State Senate is the right thing to do for New York – he gets it. “The system in Albany is broken and our state is going bankrupt,” says Republican and Conservative Party candidate of Central New York’s 49th District, Andrew Russo. When Andrew tells us he is a non-politician candidate, we should believe him – he talks common sense and is focused on effective government not the kind of wheeling and dealing that politicians have been doing in Albany for years. “Our current state senator should have been fighting for a better tax environment for our...

    CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Federal prosecutors charged County Auditor Frank Russo in a 21-count information filed this morning in U.S. District Court in Cleveland. Russo, 60, of Bratenahl, resigned early today. He is expected to plead guilty to bribery and obstruction charges, according to sources, based on an agreement that would resolve all issues related to both the longtime Democratic politician and his son, Vince. Although the plea agreement has not been made public, it will include a substantial sentence for Russo that could have been cut in half had he agreed to cooperate with the government against others, according to...

After the endorsement, TPE's Sal Russo couldn't tell when we might see, say, a TV ad or mailer for Minnick -- although Mark Williams claimed that the group had planned to run ads supportive of Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) until he decided to support the final version of health-care reform. So what impact have we seen? A vast and efficient cheesing-off of tea party groups in Idaho."

    What the Tea Party Movement Means for Conservatives by  Sal Russo 12/01/2009 As I have travelled across the country on the Tea Party Express buses, I have been struck by the similarity to the early days of Ronald Reagan.  The explosion of interest by every-day Americans in taking their country back, as well as the biased mainstream media trying to portray conservatives as crackpots, is all hauntingly familiar.    Will the tea party movement be the beginning of another Reagan Revolution, as I think it will, or will the left-wing media be right that we are nothing but a collection...

    The pilot of an Apache gunship, who flew to the rescue of U.S. soldiers nearly overrun at a remote outpost in Afghanistan last weekend, told ABC News today that he had "never seen that large of a force" attacking coalition troops in Afghanistan. By the time Warrant Officer Ross Lewellen and Warrant Officer Chad Bardwell arrived over the embattled outpost, dubbed Camp Keating, it was in flames and dozens of insurgents could be seen on the camp's perimeter. When the battle was over and the fire extinguished, many who survived had nothing left "except the clothes off their backs and...

    Obama's Attorney General, Eric Holder, has apparently hired a cadre of left-wing, Democrat campaign bloggers to troll through the Internet looking for news stories and blog posts that denigrate the Obama agenda. After such websites are found it is the job of these secret lefty bloggers to leave comments that come to the support of Obamaism in the comments sections. It seems that Eric Holder has created his own little propaganda unit in a valiant effort to become the Bloggi Riefenstahl of the Obama era. As reported at The Muffled Oar, a blog that first broke the story of Holder's...

Despite falling short in the election Russo continued with his political aspirations and entered the 2004 Presidential race where he began his...
